The Rushville Times, September 3, 1914
    Macomb Journal: Mrs. Sarah DeCamp died Saturday night of dysentery, with which she had been ill for about ten days. She was taken ill very suddenly about ten days ago and was brought to the Annex hospital last Thursday that she might be given the best of care, but her condition was such that human aid was unavailing.

Her age was 73 years, 10 months and 21 days. Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at 2:30 at the Jackson street Presbyterian church, Rev. W. T. Reynolds officiating. Interment was made in Oakwood.

Sarah A. McNealey was born Oct. 3, 1840, at St. John, New Brunswick. She was the daughter of Andrew and Sarah McNealey, and with them came to this state, settling near Rushville in 1844. Nov. 22, 1866, she was united in marriage with G. S. DeCamp, now deceased, and they made their home at Industry. She lived there until 1893, since which time this city has been her home. She was a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian church, which has united with the Presbyterian.

She is survived by four sons, Ed and Fred DeCamp of this city, Harry of Spokane, Wash., and Walter of Auburn, Wash.; also one brother, Wm. McNealey of Cedarville, Kan., and one sister, Mrs. Jane Gorsuch of Rushville.
